River Surfing Help

I grew up 2 miles from the ocean in NH surfing freezing cold New England winters before I got a license and got hooked on the snow. I moved to CO about 10 years ago and have not really surfed since. I stumbled across some video of guys surfing the rivers and I wanted to see if anyone could help me find some people that can help me make the jump into the river. I am open to any advice, Please help!

I need to find some gear and someone to show me how this works. I bet it would take me about a day or two to get my feet back under me before I could shred some of these ankle flappers. I am kidding I bet these rivers will beat the hell out of me. I appreciate any help

we have done a fair bit of river surfing on the Ark. my buddy Zack actually shaped a few boards based on the hull of the EZ and he and another guy were out in the lower Salida wave yesterday. Pueblo is really good above about 2000cfs. Gelnwood and Canon City also have spots. Send me a PM. We could meet up in Pueblo when it runs if you live on the Front Range.
